Organization is Internal.

Your cells already know about organization. And they’re organized in a way that stems from their deep internal orientation. 

 

The cells we see under microscopes can easily look like shapeless blobs. Unfamiliar shapes often look undefined. Sometimes cells are flat, sometimes they’re round, sometimes they’re oval. They can be packed together tightly or spread out and sparse. 

 

If we look long enough, though, to become familiar with those blobby shapes, we find that there’s much more detail than we initially recognized. Cells have fronts and they have backs. They have tops and bottoms. And when cells form structures – the organs and tissues of the human body, for instance – they align themselves with their neighbors so that the fronts are all pointing the same way and the backs are all pointing the same way. The tops align with the other tops and layers form. They’re highly organized.

 

It’s as if they all know which direction to face. 

 

You can zoom in even further though. Past that exterior organization, we can keep going. We can bring the interior of each cell into focus. If you watch long enough, you’ll notice that certain reactions only ever occur on one side of the cell. And some organelles never move from their spots at the other side of the cell. It’s not just a microscopic swimming pool filled with cytoplasm that has blobby, floaty organelles bouncing around inside. It’s a highly organized interior. Your cells have an orientation. 

 

Organized communities are beautiful and functional. Your cells, in alignment with their neighbors, can accomplish astonishing functions with efficiency that’s impossible for a disorganized mass. But even more beautiful is self-assigned organization; the kind that seems voluntary. That type of organization can only arise from deep internal orientation.
